Full Description & Details

As I was exiting University on foot via top gate into North Holmes Road, Canterbury I turned around to check for cars on access road and immediately saw a silver cigar shaped craft travelling at speed from my left (South) towards my right (North) across the tops of the buildings on the site. It was about 200-300 feet above but was so large appeared nearer. It was silent and I initially thought 'what's a plane doing here'.....it had no tail piece but had a slanting rear section and 100% no wings or undercarriage.

It was within seconds across the city in the distance travelling north I walked down the access road so I was in line with the craft and saw the craft was in a perfect straight course Due North and was clearly defined as a cigar/tube in shape.

I called colleagues in the University via a personal radio system and two colleagues said they had watched the craft coming over the grounds as they had heard a humming noise which had drawn their initial attention.

On investigating further that day I heard on local news radio stations that there had been 'numerous sightings of UFO's over Canterbury and East Kent as a whole. A record was made in the occurrence book held at the main University office with Security staff.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Was not a conventional plane was not a helicopter was not a balloon was solid and metallic
